OMG, it cannot possibly be a few days away from 2010! It seems like just yesterday, we were all waiting till midnight, the year of Y2K to see if our computer world would fall apart. Where did the time go? I know where it went; mostly it got divided into good and bad choices that we made with our lives.

To say the least, New Years Eve was never my favorite time of year, I always felt forced to have fun and for the most part that never worked. Two years ago, I had my very first New Year’s date, which was very memorable to me, to have someone actually ask me out for New Years was such a new experience for me. I use to be the girl who stayed home and ate a half gallon of ice cream and told everyone I had plans so they would not feel bad for me, It amazes me how quickly my life changed for the better once I turned my bad choices into good choices.

One day, I was saying how will I ever lose 300 lbs and then I had lost 200. One day I had type two diabetes and then very shortly after I started losing weight my diabetes numbers were normal. We might feel totally overwhelmed today with our lives, but I am here to tell you every choice you make counts and your life can turn around for the better so fast that you would not believe it. There are so many things I still want to get right in this life and sometimes it truly overwhelms me. I need to slow down and remember what works for me and then repeat those behaviors. I learned from the Oprah show to write 5 things every day that I am grateful for and I started this at 550 lbs . . . . in the notebook I wrote even the littlest things, like I’m grateful I got out of bed today, I’m grateful I have friends, etc. It is not important whether they are big or small, what is important is that we learn to appreciate things.

So here is my new year’s 2010 grateful list for today:

!. I am grateful that my mom is alive

2 I am grateful that I can go outside everyday and enjoy life

3 I am grateful for my wonderful new dog

4 I am grateful that this year’s mammogram was clean

5 I am grateful that people feel I motivate them

Now start your grateful list and have a great New Years with love … Stacey
